2:47 am
she is collaborative, she is smart, you can't ask for a better person to sit on the commission. she's involved in the community, the mission cultural center, the larasa lawyers association, she does have our back. she's big for affordable housing where we live, her and i, we have young adult children trying to live and work in san francisco, trying to make it here. we live in a community with many senior citizens. she is very conscious of that and she's aware of that. i also want it say the mayor has done a great job in terms of the candidates he's picked and the diversity they represent and they are all outstanding candidates. she would be great, you can't good wrong, we can agree to disagree on some things but she is very supportive on a lot of the issues that are near and dear to our hearts. i've seen her out in the community, her and her son,

2:50 am
have mara marsalis on the other side of the table. i was there as executive officer of the san mateo (inaudible) you should have seen what it was to build with the san mateo building trades because they didn't understand what it was to provide community benefits. she understands it, she supports it, i think you are very fortunate to have her, the city will. i know she is the type of person that will provide us all of the time commitments that are needed on these commissions because that's the hardest thing for folks when they accept these commissions is the time. thank you, supervisors, have a great afternoon. >> hi, madam president, my name is rod sahad,
